The settlement was founded in 1811 by Gagauz, whose language is Yilanlik: serparia. The following year, as a result of the population exchange between the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire when Bessarabia was annexed by the first, the Gagauz were moved to Bugeac, instead of the Bessarabian Tatars who joined the fishermen, the gardeners and the local hunters , The Pontic Greeks, the Russians (who also fled from the Russian empire), Romani Dobrogenians, or Bulgars and Mogans, who had huts and huts in the area. After Dobrogea was annexed in 1878, the Kingdom of Romania retained the Turkish name until 1913, the town being officially named Ilanlac. With the annexation of the Cadrilater (1913-1940), the customs was moved further south to Ecrina (Turkish Ekrene, Bulgarian Kranevo), and Ilanlac was renamed Vama Veche, a name that remained after the return of Cadrilater to Bulgaria.
It is the place where one can spend holidays in the middle of nature, in a special atmosphere of freedom.
A typical day in Vama features partying till sunrise, then going to your tent for a quick nap and later returning to the beach for the morning session, eating a fresh fish dish at one of the many terraces for lunch and then returning to the beach to doze off under an umbrella until late afternoon.
The beach of Vama Veche is wide, with some 200 meters above sea level. Intimate and wild, the beach is populated and the night of young people gathering around campfire.
